I havent had a lot of experience moving in my adult life. My family moved to Paris, Arkansas when I was 8 and I lived there until I moved into a dorm, only an hour and a half away. I moved to different apartments in that town, but I was always still close to friends and family. So when we moved 7 hours away to Kansas, it was a big jump for me. But we made a home there. And we really thought we would be stationed there for 6 years. I didnt see this PCS coming at all! And I REALLY should have. It was 2 years on the dot!
Now we live 12 hours away from our families in a very new town. Maybe once we've been doing this army life stuff longer, I will get used to this. But the idea of moving every 2 years, away from my home, my friends, my life, is very odd to me. This will be the first place in my adult life I will have to make a home on my own. I will hold down our new home while Joe is deployed. While it's not the first time I've lived alone or the first time we've had to do a VERY long distance relationship, this will be our first deployment.
So here we are, making a new life in Colorado, making new memories, making new friends, making a home.
